This Incredible offering of hand drawn sketches features some of the most iconic Disney characters of all-time. Each piece was acquired through the mail from long time collector Jim Schendel, who was a known collector of many fields that wrote to athletes, historic figures, presidents, actors, musicians and many important individuals since the 1950s. Jim would not send the typical "please sign this for me" request; rather he asked for something to add to his unique collection. In this case, Jim was sent hand drawn sketches and signed letters from the animators who sketched the real Disney characters! Complete list: 1) Pinocchio 4x6" sketch in crayon by Ollie Johnston. 2-3) Donald Duck 8x10" watercolor by Bill Justice. Also signed handwritten letter from Bill with another sketch of Donald Duck. 4) Donald Duck 8x10" sketch in colored pencil by Tony Anselmo (voice). 5-6) Bambi 8x10" sketch by Rudy Elstad. Comes with signed letter from Rudy to Jim. 7) "Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty" 6x8" sketch by Marc Davis. 8) Rolly from 101 Dalmations 6x6" sketch by Ken Anderson, inscribed to Jim. 9) Ratigan from "The Great Mouse Detective" charcoal sketch by Glen Keane. 10) Jiminy Cricket 5x6" charcoal sketch by Glen Keane. Each sketch is signed by the animator and most are inscribed to Jim. Also included is an original "Good Fairy" cel, Carl Banks signed Christmas card, Clarence Nash signed photo, 13 Disney prints and postcards, and more. Comes with original envelopes from Ollie Johnston, Marc Davis and Ken Anderson from when they sent Jim these sketches 30+ years ago.
